All Blacks Prediction Tattoo Pays Off!

New Zealand native and fan Wade Sloane may just hold the title of most dedicated All Blacks fan, or least they're most believing.

Two days before the 2015 Rugby World Cup Final and Sloan got a tattoo to commemorate an All Blacks victory that hadn't even happened yet!! Thankfully his team came through and saved him from some awkward body art.
Surprisingly this isn't the first time Sloane got a preemptive tattoo, four years ago he did the same thing. Three days before the 2011 Rugby World Cup Final Sloane got a piece commemorating the All Blacks 1987 world cup win as well as there 2011 win, which at the time was yet to happen!! Feeling like his tattoo brought 'good luck' in 2011 Sloan revisited it and had 2015 added to the design two days before the All Blacks claimed their third world cup after beating Australia 34-17 in the final.

2011 and 2015 were added before the respective finals had even taken place!!

...Perhaps Sloane's bold tattoo predictions are lucky after all!

Of course the All Blacks are no strangers to tattoos, a number of their best players have sported some incredible tattoos over the years. Here's some of the finest!
